It was the 4th day in the inca trail, we were woke up at 4am with a tea and a small snack for the day. No porter, no breakfast, no lunch included today. We need to pack our stuff quickly. It is 4h30 and it is completly dark outside but there are already hundreds of persons waiting in line for the gate to open at 5h30am. The access to Machu pichu is stricly controlled here again. The head lamp were very useful. Once our ticket is validated, I start passing slow people walking on the trail. I arrived to the sun gate in the first few person. I took a few picture of machu pichu from far away. We went down the trail until we get to the “postcard” picture spot for the Machu pichu. We got a few picture and then our guide made us visit the different section of the city. Wow! It is beautiful! Once the tour was completed, we decided to use the rest of our energy to get to the inca bridge. Wow. That is not recommended for those afraid of height! The trail is narrow, and then a 500 meters cliff down to the river. Very impressive construction!
I’m done. I need a beer. Let’s go to Aguas Caliente.
